The Mayhew Animal Home

Smitten couple move Heaven and Earth to adopt Hugo

When a young couple first met Hugo earlier this year, it was love at first sight.

• They bonded immediately, and Zoe and Aaron knew straight away they wanted to welcome the four-year-old Beagle in to their lives.
• Luckily, they had recently moved into a pet-friendly property, and so it seemed the stars were aligned.
• However, despite the verbal assurances from their estate agent that Zoe and Aaron would be able to care for a dog in their new home, their formal request to adopt Hugo was refused by their new landlord.

During Month of Mayhew, you can be as creative as you like in how you fundraise for the animal welfare charity; from holding a cake sale and adding a dog or cat-themed twist, to running a marathon to hosting a dinner party dressed all in purple (Mayhew’s colour, of course!).
